    Yes, I believe the SCOTUS has become a ruling council. They perform precisely the role the Ayatollahs perform in Iran.

    Actually, the Supreme Court is part of our system of checks and balances, designed to keep a group of crazies from running over the Constitutional rights of others. Seems that, in this case, the system is working good.

    Except that Supreme Court justices are appointed by the president and confirmed by the senate. Ayatollahs are a different sort of problem.

    Not happy about the ruling but don't think its a judicial activism. In nutshell, they're saying the federal law supercedes that of the state's. Solution to the problem, change the federal law.

    This ruling is a knife with two edges. What they've done here as well is nullified any possibility of a state saying citizenship is not required to vote which a few have been toying with that idea.

    I registered to vote, I helped my daughter register. That's an interesting story. It was 2000 and my daughter had just turned 18. We are obviously Jewish and the woman taking the form gaily said to my daughter, "Just think, your first vote will be for Joe Lieberman!" When my daughter replied, "ummm, errrr, not really...." the lady lost her temper and threatened to tear up the registration form rather than process it.

    the answer is .....no ...........according to the USSC

    My understanding is the case is about whether a state can add their own requirements, without federal input.

    It seems the answer is no.

    However:

    News from The Associated Press

    While the court was clear in stating that states cannot add additional identification requirements to the federal forms on their own, it was also clear that the same actions can be taken by state governments if they get the approval of the federal government and the federal courts.

    Arizona can ask the federal government to include the extra documents as a state-specific requirement, Scalia said, and take any decision made by the government on that request back to court. Other states have already done so, Scalia said.

    The Election Assistance Commission "recently approved a state-specific instruction for Louisiana requiring applicants who lack a Louisiana driver's license, ID card or Social Security number to attach additional documentation to the completed federal form," Scalia said.
